Hip-hop star Snoop Dogg has been branded a nightmare neighbour by the residents whose road he deserted seven years ago. The rapper sold his lavish Claremont, California home earlier this week (begs13Aug07) - despite moving out in 2000 after it featured on an episode of MTV's Cribs. And the news has been met with jubilation by his former neighbours who grew tired of his constant partying. One resident, Capt. Gary Jenkins, recalls, "There were regular parties, and they were loud. So we would receive a lot of noise complaints. There were a lot of cars in the neighbourhood and people loitering around in the streets." The house boasts eight bedrooms, five bathrooms, a home theatre room, a recording studio, a swimming pool and spa, a pool house, a basketball court and a tennis court.
